Malcolm McKenzic and Hon. A. J. McLean came up from thc south and lion. Mr. Mitchell , came down from Edmonton for ths purpose of meeting the premier on his return from Winnipeg lo discuss this question, which has been so strongly urged by a number of boards of trade and town councils.

LOST NO TIME IN ACCEPTING IT RESIGNATION OF BRITISH CABINET MINISTER WAS ARRANGED BY WIRELE8S London, June 12!-Lord Loreburn'B resignation as Lord High Chancellor, and Lord Haldanc's acceptance of the place were arranged . by wireless, which isr-probabj^ the first time that such an event was cdncTOoted in that manner. Premier Asquith was cruising in the Mediterranean when Lord Loreburn wrote resigning his post, and his letter was "transmitted wireless. In a similar way'arrangements were concluded -with Lord Hal-, dane by wireless to-;takft.the vacant place. It.was generally-"expected some months ago that > Premier Asquith himself would succeed Lord Loreburn. if the latter could be prevailed upon to retire, which, according to the gossips, he stubbornly refused to do because of a personal feud witl$ the premier. The conditions, are now different. Mr. 'Asquith considers it his duty to'the to retain his premiership and Lord Loreburn had no objection in resigning so long as it was not in favor of Mr, AS-quitli. Mr. Asqutth's resignation to tave the Woolsack would be likely to cause a great deal of excitement among the Liberals, among whom there is no agreement as to his successor. * KING GEORGE - 12.-King * George, at the Royai Agricul- 4� * tural Show, at Guildford, * prize of the Shorthorn Society ' * best two-year-old heifer. *  WHERE ARE LETHBRIDGE Disgraceful Doings in the Officially Recognized Segregated Area "The next illicit booze seller' who comes before me will get: nine months in jail without tbe option of a fine."

At the present utmf'and, indeed, for some tlnTg�aj^^;.yoiufc of this city have beett^^�Uiti^'% regular booze orgies in "in*' neighborhood of the point. One,-,woman7-ne it said to her credit, refused to supply the boyB with liquor! but this did not do good, as at the next house they, visited, they got all they wanted, it now seems as if it is up to the authorities to get busy and prevent the appearance of boys in a district from whence no good can ever com*.

J. Hill arrived in town yesterday from his home in St. Paul, and by the end of the week will start with a party of old friends for the annual fishing trip to Canada. The journey to St. John, N. B., will be accomplished by train, and Mr. Hill's yacht, Wacouta, will be taken during the rest of his trip to Salmon River, in Labrador. Mr. Hill is fairly optimistic on the general outlook,. pronouncing the crops in the Northwest better than in three or four years at this date, but judging the volume of business being transacted in that party of the country to be only fair. Asked if a great increase in prosperity was to be witnessed, he answered: "I can't say that. It will come when the man who pays the bills is ready. He is not ready yet. No, 1 don't mean the capitalist. By the man who pays the bills, I mean anybody who has gjt more than his hands, and the clothes on his back." Reports that he had sold his Great Northern holdings to J. P. Morgan and Co., were denied by Mr.-Hill, who said he had not sold a share. ' Despatches in the West that the Great Northern was planning to build a road through Canada westward from Winnipeg, and also that an extension waB projected from Medford, a con^ nectlon with another road, wihlcb would bring the Great Northern to San Francisco, were disposed of by Mr. Hill's remark: "You might just as well say that we are going to buUd a pontoon bridge to Honolulu." It being suggested, that the rumored Winnipeg to the Coast line, according to the reports, was to be constructed with the primary object of reaching the wheat fields of Canada, Mr. Hill said: "Those wheat fields are not as big as you may think; they are no bigger than those of Montana and South Dakota." He declined to dismiss politics, or the recent official changes .on the Great Northern Company. , BROTHER TURNED AGAINST BROTHER CROWN SPRINGS SURPRISE IN MURDER CASE AND SCCUR- "' ID A CONVICTION Montreal, June U.-With every indication that' tbe crown could not make its case against thc two brothers, Henry and Frederick Seybold, charged with the murder of Margaret McCalium, alias Burceiy, May 22nd. last, Crown Prosecutor Walsh sprung . a surprise on the defence this afternoon, when after a short adjournment he discharged Henry,, stating : that there was not sufficient evidence against him, and immediately put hiio into the witness box to turn King's evidence against his brothe.r.
